U.S. bishops betrayed the unborn, fearing Catholics would leave Democrat Party

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.”
-2 Corinthians 11:13-15

Mark Gallagher had worked with the Government Liaison Office of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference in Washington from 1974 to 2007. He was mainly responsible for lobbying Congress on abortion and programs for the poor.

In a stunning article for Crisis Magazine, Oct. 22, 2014, Gallagher gives a first-person account that after the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v Wade ruling opening the floodgates to the killing of unborn human beings by legalizing abortion in the name of women’s “right to privacy,” Catholic bishops — putting “social justice” before the right to life — made a collective decision not to aggressively warn and inform the laity because they feared doing so would drive American Catholics away from the Democratic Party into the GOP.

Our Lord Jesus the Christ had warned: “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits.” (Matthew 7:15-16)

These bishops have nothing less than the blood of innocents on their hands. They will be called to account for their grave sins before God.

Here is Gallagher’s article in its entirety.

The Bishops’ Fateful Decision Respecting the Unborn

Mark Gallagher – Crisis Magazine – Oct. 22, 2014

In 1973 the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion. It was projected that the decision would not just replace illegal abortions with legal ones, but that the total number of abortions would dramatically increase (it turned out by approximately a million a year). It was clear that there were only two remedies: the Supreme Court reversing it; or a constitutional amendment proposed by Congress and ratified by the states to overturn it. This required the election of presidents who would nominate Supreme Court justices not interested in creating constitutional rights to legal abortion, and the election of pro-life members of Congress to confirm the justices, and to propose a constitutional amendment. Elections were the key. How were the bishops to proceed?

The bishops’ conference staff provided two conflicting recommendations. As their pro-life lobbyist, I recommended that the bishops conduct a major campaign to educate and correctly form the consciences of American Catholics to their responsibility to elect candidates who support the Common Good, which is protecting the human life and respecting the human dignity of every person created by God (including the unborn). And those candidates who refused to support the Common Good would be morally unacceptable for public office. The laity’s responsibility included being involved in their political party so that Common Good candidates would be recruited and nominated for office.

The Social Development and World Peace staff at the bishops’ conference disagreed with this approach. They dealt with the economy, poverty, food policy, housing, human rights, military expenditures, and U.S. foreign policy, and felt their goals and prudential judgments were more reflected by the Democrats in Congress. I was told sometime later of their concern that Roe v. Wade would cause Catholics to seek the protection of the unborn by voting for Republicans (most were pro-life [90+ percent]) instead of Democrats (about 2/3rds were pro-abortion then [94 percent now]). This shift in the Catholic vote would necessarily hurt their legislative agenda. So a campaign should be undertaken to convince Catholics that there was justification to vote for pro-abortion candidates. Their view prevailed and they pursued with the relevant bishops’ committees the first-ever Catholic voters guide published in 1976, called the “Political Responsibility Statement” (now called Faithful Citizenship). It would be the primary tool to achieve their objective. The document:

(1) Did not call upon Catholics to vote against a candidate who opposed the Common Good by supporting abortion. It cited no intrinsic evil that if supported would render a legislator morally unacceptable for office. And It did not include relevant Catholic moral theology: (a) that the constant teaching of the Church is that there are “certain choices that are always intrinsically evil” (i.e. abortion: … if one could eliminate all poverty in America at the cost of permitting the killing of one innocent person, that cost was too high and morally wrong); and (b) the applicability of proportionalism. According to one authoritative source, it holds that “the moral quality of an action is determined by whether the evils brought about by proposed action are proportionate to the goods the action effects. If the goods effected by the action are not in proportion to the evils caused, then the action is evil, but if they are, then the action is morally good.” First, there are no proportionate goods achieved by the killing of a million unborn each year. Second, voting American Catholics are not faced with any moral evils equivalent to abortion that might warrant voting for a pro-abortion candidate. Voters have never been faced with the dilemma of choosing between a pro-abortion candidate and, for example, a rival candidate that would permit the killing annually of a million citizens through starvation or freezing. Or, by way of another example, Catholic voters do not have to choose between a pro-abortion candidate and a candidate advocating an unjust war that would involve a first-strike nuclear attack on millions of innocent persons. Voting for pro-abortion candidates in America has never been, and still cannot, be justified under the principle of proportionality.

(2) Listed everything they hoped a legislator would support (at least a dozen). This marginalized protecting human life by making it just one of many important issues. The candidate who supported abortion could say (and routinely did), that they supported 90-95 percent of the bishops legislative agenda.

(3) The current voter guide explicitly permits Catholics to vote for candidates who support intrinsic moral evils. It says, “A Catholic cannot vote for a candidate who takes a position in favor of an intrinsic evil” like abortion, “if the voter’s intent is to support that position.” But what if a voter supports a pro-abortion candidate for some other reason? “There may be times when a Catholic who rejects a candidate’s unacceptable position may decide to vote for that candidate for other morally grave reasons.” The moral reasons must be “truly grave,” yet as I have argued, there are no grave moral reasons that trump protecting the unborn. Also would it really be far fetched to imagine that a Catholic voter, following the guide’s exception, might support a pro-abortion candidate because, for example, his position on “climate change” echoes that of the bishops who have said that saving the planet by reducing carbon emissions was a moral obligation?

In addition to this voters’ guide, the national Social Development and World Peace staff, as well as their diocesan counterparts, informed Catholics that there was justification to vote for pro-abortion candidates. This education campaign included workshops to persuade the laity that it was better to use their vote to achieve a good (helping the poor) rather than to oppose an evil (abortion).

A final step that helped pro-abortion Catholic candidates was the bishops giving them, or permitting them to receive, Communion. Many laity concluded that these legislators’ votes for abortion were morally acceptable, and that Catholics could vote for them in good conscience. Regular reception of Communion in the Catholic Church conveys that the person is a practicing Catholic, in the state of grace, in good standing, in communion with the Church.

All of these actions decreased the number of churchgoing Catholics voting pro-life, and this prevented (and still prevents) achieving sufficient votes to legally protect the unborn.

From a political science perspective the division of the Catholic vote (those voting for pro-life candidates and those voting for pro-abortion candidates) has severely limited if not completely neutralized the effect of the Catholic vote for good. If a significant majority of Catholics were united in only supporting Common Good candidates, as the Jewish community is largely united in only supporting candidates who support the State of Israel, then Catholics would legislatively achieve protection for the unborn and many other goals. When a group can decide the outcome of elections on one issue, then it will command serious consideration of whatever it pursues. The divided Catholic vote has prevented this.

The bishops have continued on their failed course for forty years, with fateful, disastrous results. If the bishops would change course, the legal killing, now at 56 million, could be stopped. The bishops need to teach that: (a) Legislators have the compelling moral responsibility to pursue the Common Good, protecting the human life and respecting the human dignity of every person created by God, born and unborn. And those who do not, are morally unfit for office; (b) “Catholic” legislators who support abortion are not in communion with the Church and they will not be given Communion until they are; and (c) Catholic citizens cannot in good conscience elect legislators who support the killing of the unborn (for there are no proportionate reasons to justify it).

Oregon’s Covanta plant incinerates aborted babies to generate electricity

We are reminded again and again, in schools and by the media, of the horrific practices of Nazi Germany — how the Nazis dehumanized Jews as Untermenschen (sub-human), herded them into concentration camps, then exterminated an estimated 6 million of them in gas chambers and even used their fat to make soap.

But that’s EXACTLY what we’re doing to tiny human beings of all races under the guise of a woman’s “reproductive rights”. And it’s lawful!

Since 1980, a total of 1,332,55o,000 unborn babies have been killed worldwide. That’s one BILLION 332 million 550 thousand! In the United States, more than 56 million abortions have been committed since the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision of 1972 making the killing of unborn human beings lawful.

A month ago, news came from across “the pond” that the remains of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies in the UK were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals.

Now comes news that this barbaric practice isn’t just in the UK. An energy plant in Oregon, Covanta Waste-to-Energy Facility, burnt aborted babies from Canada to generate electricity.

Covanta Waste-to-Energy Facility

Steven Ertelt reports for Life News, April 23, 2014, that The British Columbia Catholic Herald (BCCH) newspaper reported this week that the remains of aborted and miscarried children from British Columbia are likely being mixed with everyday trash and sent to an energy plant in Oregon.

BCCH contacted the British Columbia Health Ministry and received a response back saying that, in accordance with provincial laws, “biomedical waste,” including “human tissue” and “fetal tissue” are being disposed of through officially approved contractors, and that some of that “waste” is shipped to Oregon:

“The ministry understands that some is transferred to Oregon. There it is incinerated in a waste-to-energy plant.”

According to BCCH, the Oregon plant in question is located in Brooks, Marion County, Oregon.

Following the LifeNews story that received national attention, Oregon’s Marion County Board of Commissioners issued the following statement:

Today the Marion County Board of Commissioners learned that the Covanta Waste-to-Energy Facility located in Marion County may be accepting medical waste containing human tissue from outside sources. In response to an April 21 article in The B.C Catholic, the board took immediate action to temporarily halt the acceptance of boxed medical waste at the facility.

Commissioner Sam Brentano, chair, said, “We provide an important service to the people of this state and it would be a travesty if this program is jeopardized due to this finding. We thought our ordinance excluded this type of material at the waste-to-energy facility. We will take immediate action to ensure a process is developed to prohibit human tissue from future deliveries.

“We are outraged and disgusted that this material could be included in medical waste received at the facility,” said Commissioner Janet Carlson. “We did not know this practice was occurring until today. We are taking immediate action and initiating discussions with Covanta Marion to make certain that this type of medical waste is not accepted in the future.”

The board has called an Emergency Meeting to discuss the issue further for 9 a.m. Thursday, April 24, 2014, in the Board of Commissioners Office located at 555 Court Street NE, 5th Floor, Salem.

In other words, the board is meeting TODAY.

Here’s contact info for the members of Marion County’s Board of Commissioners:

UPDATE (April 28, 2014):

Bud Waterman, a former plant worker at Covanta, says the incineration of aborted babies for energy had been going on for years and he believes plant officials and perhaps even county government officials should have known. He said that on more than one occasion, the contents of the truck dropping off biohazardous material spilled out of their containers. “It would make you sick, especially if you had to clean it up or have to pull a box off the trailer,” said Waterman.

Actor Mark Ruffalo is proud his mother aborted his sibling

svomit_100-121

mark_ruffaloMark Ruffalo is severely IQ-challenged

In a column for the website Stop Patriarchy, actor Mark Ruffalo propagandizes for abortion the killing of unborn babies with a tear-jerking account of how his mother was “driven” to an illegal abortion the illegal murder of Ruffalo’s sibling.

Ruffalo, who was raised Roman Catholic,  is best known for portraying Marvel Comics character Bruce Banner/The Hulk in the 2012 blockbuster The Avengers.

Ruffalo writes (my editorial comments are in italics, colored teal):

I am a man. (Gosh, you don’t say!) I could say this has nothing to do with me. (Yes, it does. The murder of human beings concerns everyone, man and woman.) Except I have two daughters and I have a mother who was forced (We are all given free will. No one, including your mother, is ever forced to do anything.) to illegally have an abortion in her state where abortion was illegal when she was a very young woman. It cost $600 cash. It was a traumatizing thing for her. (Imagine, Mark, the trauma of your unborn sibling being aborted killed.) It was shameful and sleazy and demeaning. When I heard the story I was aghast by the lowliness of a society that would make a woman do that. (I am aghast by the continuing lowliness of a society that sanctions the killing of not-yet-born human life.) I could not understand its lack of humanity; today is no different. (Today is no different? Then why do the pro-aborts so fiercely protect the historic Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling?)

What happened to my mother was a relic of an America that was not free nor equal nor very kind. (Is it kind, Mark, to kill innocent, albeit very small, human beings against their will?) My mother’s illegal abortion marked a time in America that we have worked long and hard to leave behind. It was a time when women were seen as second rate citizens who were not smart enough, nor responsible enough, nor capable enough to make decisions about their lives. (There you go again, Mark, repeating one of the Left’s favorite lies that anyone who disagrees with the Left must be stupid. Tsk, tsk.) It was a time that deserved to be left behind, and leave it behind we did, or so it seemed.  We made abortion and a woman’s ability to be her own master a Right. (Killing is now elevated to being a woman’s right. Our Founding Fathers must be weeping.) That Right was codified into law.  That law was the law of the land for decades.  My own mother fought to make herself more than a possession; she lived her life as a mother who chose when she would have children, and a wife who could earn a living if she so chose.  I want my daughters to enjoy that same choice (–of killing my own grandchildren!). I don’t want to turn back the hands of time to when women shuttled across state lines in the thick of night to resolve an unwanted pregnancy, in a cheap hotel room just south of the state line.  Where a transaction of $600 cash becomes the worth of a young woman’s life.  ($600 is still $600 more than the worth of your aborted sibling’s life, Mark.) So that is why I am lending my voice to you and your movement today.  Because I actually trust the women I know (to kill and “Do As They Will” — the motto of the Church of Satan!).  I trust them with their choices, I trust them with their bodies and I trust them with their children (– only the children that are allowed to live).  I trust that they are decent enough and wise enough and worthy enough to carry the right of Abortion (Infanticide) and not be forced to criminally exercise that Right at the risk of death or jail time.

Blah. Blah. Blah.

I’m sick of reading the rest of Ruffalo’s mindless, unthinking, downright stupid and evil drivel.

Mark Ruffalo, you’re so stupid you haven’t even thought of this:

But for the grace of God, it could be your sibling, instead of you, writing this obscene column about how proud s/he is that your good ol’ mum had aborted you.

Mark Ruffalo, you make me puke. svomit_100-121

I now vow I will NEVER watch any movie or TV show you’re in. EVER.

In 1973 only 2.8% of American women had aborted a child.

By 2008 that percentage had grown to 40%.

SatanFrom 2008 to 2013, under the regime of President Lucifer, abortion mills have risen to a near governmental power, and are being actively promoted in the public schools.

The following article can be read at: http://www.johnstonsarchive.net/policy/abortion/uslifetimeab.html

Percentage of United States women who have had abortions

compiled by Wm. Robert Johnston
last updated 15 October 2008

Summary: It is estimated here that, as of 2008, about 28% of U.S. women ages 15-64 have had abortions. This figure has risen from 2.8% in 1973 to 11% in 1980, 19% in 1987, 24% in 1994, and 27% in 2001. In 2008, of women ages 40-55, about 40% have had abortions in their lifetimes.

From 1967 to September 2008, approximately 50,200,000 abortions occurred in the United States; of these, about 30,260,000 or 60% were to women with no prior abortions [1,2]. In other words, 30,260,000 different women had one or more abortions from 1967 to the present in the U.S.

Given that there were 101,314,000 women ages 15-64 in the U.S. in 2007, this implies about 25-28% of women ages 15-64 in the U.S. today have had at least one abortion in their lifetime. The uncertainty stems from unaccounted-for factors such as mortality among older women, women who have immigrated into the U.S. in this time period, U.S. women who obtained abortions abroad, and abortions obtained in the U.S. by women from other countries. (This discussion only includes legal abortions; illegal abortions prior to the 1970s were probably in numbers small enough not to significantly affect the final results.)

These statistics are reported by the Alan Guttmacher Institute:

  • “… roughly one-third of women will have an abortion during their reproductive lifetime…” (2008) [1]
  • “… of American women … at current rates more than one-third (35%) will have had an abortion by age 45.” (2008) [3]
  • “… of women aged 15-44 … 30% have had an abortion.” (1992 figures) [4]

The following data are based on a model incorporating data from a 2008 Alan Guttmacher Institute release [1], reporting 1973-2004 figures based on their periodic surveys of abortion providers (these surveys are widely accepted as the most complete data available on U.S. abortions), supplemented by CDC and other data for 1967-1972 [2] and estimates for 2005-2008.

The graph below shows estimated number of U.S. women who have had abortions by age. The annual number of abortions in the U.S. peaked in 1990, although the abortion rate per 1000 women aged 15-44 peaked earlier, in 1980. This abortion rate has dropped from 29.28 in 1980 to 19.41 in 2005, representing a variety of factors but likely including a shift in attitudes towards abortion. The peak in the graph has shifted with the aging of those women who obtained abortions in the 1980s.

The next graph shows the estimated percentage of U.S. women who have had abortions by age. Again, it shows the aging of women who obtained abortions in the first 15-20 years after Roe v. Wade and the more recent drop in abortion rates among women under 25. Consequently, the fraction of 25-year-old women who have obtained abortions has dropped from 32% in 1980-87 to 26% in 2001 and 21% in 2008.

The following table gives estimated percentages of U.S. women who have ever had abortions by age ranges–note that these percentages are approximate. Nonetheless, both the prevalence and the shifting demographics of abortion is evident. (One issue is the health implications of a large aging population who have obtained abortions in the past–for example, given the possible link between induced abortion and breast cancer.)

year estimated % of US women who have had abortions by age range
12-80 15-64 12-19 20-29 30-39 40-49 50-59 60-69 70-79
1973 2.3 2.8 2.7 6.2 2.7 0.6 0.0 0.0 0.0
1980 9.0 11.1 6.1 23.3 13.5 4.4 0.3 0.0 0.0
1987 15.2 18.6 6.2 30.6 29.6 12.2 2.6 0.1 0.0
1994 19.8 24.4 4.6 30.4 39.8 25.8 8.6 1.3 0.0
2001 22.3 27.0 4.8 26.6 40.0 36.9 16.6 4.8 0.3
2008 24.3 28.6 2.3 19.3 35.0 41.2 34.6 14.3 3.4

A 1998 study by Henshaw [4] included a more sophisticated analysis than the one above; for 1994, here are a comparison of percentage of women who have had abortions by age range from Henshaw and from this analysis–to give some indication of the uncertainty in the figures above.

year estimated % of US women who have had abortions by age range
15-19 20-24 25-29 30-34 35-39 40-44
1994, Henshaw 7.0 26.3 37.3 40.2 38.3 25.0
1994, this analysis 7.2 24.9 35.5 39.8 39.8 31.2

Aborting a 27-week-old baby is just like a flu shot

Years ago, after the Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade decision, wise people have warned that legalizing the murder of unborn human persons will transform America into a Culture of Death, wherein we increasingly lose our empathy and become callous and indifferent to degradation, suffering, and killing.

Here’s a grotesque example.

Abortion doctor Carmen LandauAbortion “doctor” Carmen Landau

Steven Ertelt reports for LifeNews, June 13, 2013:

A new undercover video shows a New Mexico-based abortion practitioner telling a woman considering an abortion that killing a 27-week old baby is no different than getting a flu shot.

The pro-life group Live Action has released the latest in a series of videos exposing late-term abortion practitioners showing no compassion over killing babies late in pregnancy. In this new video, Dr. Carmen Landau, of Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and a counselor employed at the same facility, are shown making shocking statements.

southwestern women's option

When asked by the Live Action investigator, “Is it a baby?,” the counselor answers:

Well what – how – what do you consider a baby?  It’s definitely a fetus. … Um, it depends what the term “baby” means to you, and how you perceive it.

When asked if the possibility of the pre-born baby feeling pain bothers her, the New Mexico counselor replies:

I feel that it’s, um, necessary for the procedure to happen and, ultimately, um, safest, and kind of the most, kinda, humane way to do it, you know?

Abortion doctor Carmen Landau tells the investigator that the injection that will kill her baby is “like any shot, you know, like a flu shot, or a vaccine, really.” Contrary to a large body of evidence, she alleges that babies in the womb do not feel pain or anguish from a poisonous injection, claiming that “it’s not like you and I [sic] where when we get a flu shot, we’re kind of, ‘Ugh!’ – not – that – that – that experience of anxiety and suffering is not – it [the baby]‘s not capable of.”

Lila Rose, President of Live Action, says she hopes to educate the nation on the true nature of abortion.

“These babies,” said Rose, “whom Carmen Landau calls ‘not a thinking being,’ are unique and precious human persons. They feel, they dream, they grow…and when an abortionist tries to kill them with a needle or with forceps, they react. They fight for their lives, just as any of us would. Our investigation has exposed the disturbing willingness of abortionists to engage in illegal and inhuman acts, including misleading pregnant women, pushing them into abortion, and even infanticide. This is horrible, but Americans should know just as well the horrifying practices that are still legal, that we allow to happen every day.”

The first half of Live Action’s latest video details abortionists’ estimation of the humanity of the unborn child. Abortionist Laura Mercer assures the investigator that her 24-week baby “doesn’t even look like a baby yet.” Live Action provides several images of premature babies born as early as 23 weeks.

The Live Action video chronicles the story of Toby, a baby born prematurely at 24 weeks – the gestational age of the organization’s pregnant investigators’ babies at the time of many of the undercover investigations. “Toby puts a name and a face to the atrocious murders occurring in these facilities,” Rose said. “Every day, abortionists are brutally killing children just like him. Whether they’re called ‘fetuses’ or ‘babies,’ this fact doesn’t change, and it’s time for Americans to come to terms with it.”

“What our video investigation is uncovering,” Rose said, “along with what we have learned from the trial of late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell and from the whistle-blowers from Douglas Karpen’s facility, is that this is abuse. Abortion doctors, counselors, and other staff describe ‘stop[ping] the fetal heart,’ a needle being inserted through the baby’s head, an ‘intrauterine demise.’  They describe babies becoming ‘mushy,’ and how they ‘literally go in and grab and pull pieces out.’ They refer to these babies as human beings, and carry out these inhuman practices on them anyway.”

“Every human being is unique and precious from the moment of conception. But abortionists will not give even these babies – 24 weeks, 27 weeks, viable, capable of surviving outside the womb – the dignity of humanity. So we want to put the question in every American’s head: if not even these babies are worthy of humanity in the abortionist’s eyes, then what is human? What does ‘human’ even mean?”

End of LifeNews article.

The abortion of a 27-week-old unborn baby is a late term abortion — as are all abortions after the 20th week of gestation. In 2003, late-term abortions finally became unlawful in the United States when the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act (PBABA) was signed into law.

But Pres. Lucifer (and FLPOS Michelle, too) not only approves of partial-birth abortion, he three-times voted against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002 – a federal law, signed by President George W. Bush, which extends legal protection to an infant born alive after a failed attempt at induced abortion. (Read more: “Obama is evil.”)

Aborted baby tissue sold for $25,000 a shot

Hitler and the Nazis are reviled for murdering 6 million Jews — a horrific page in human history which we call The Holocaust.

But there is an ongoing even bigger Holocaust that bestirs not our conscience, and instead is applauded and championed.

In the 40 years since the 1973 Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States, there have been more than 1.72 billion abortionsworldwide, or an average of 43.25 million abortions each year.

Among the 17.52 billion are more than 54.5 million American babies who were murdered through abortion since 1973. That’s 19.5 million more than the total population of Canada.

It is not enough that we murder our unborn. Their aborted remains are sold and ingested by perverse and deluded people in their quest for health and youth.

In May 2012, I posted about customs officials in South Korea having intercepted some 17,000 Chinese-made “medicinal” pills filled with powdered human baby flesh, which were being smuggled into the country. The capsules are marketed as being a medicinal “cure-all”. The San Francisco Times reported that tests carried out on the pills confirmed they were made up of 99.7% human remains. The tests were even able to establish the genders of the babies used. There is a huge demand for the “baby pills” because they are thought to enhance sexual stamina. Microwave-dried placenta is also sought after for its alleged “medicinal” benefits. In reality, however, the human flesh capsules contain super-bacteria and other harmful ingredients.

Now comes news that some people are paying as much as $25,000 for “a shot” of tissue and stem cells from aborted babies, in their sick fantasy that being injected with the aborted tissue would regain lost vigor, mental acuity, and a youthful appearance.

How is this other than sickening and Satanic?

Imre Téglásy, Ph.D., the director of Human Life International, writes for Zenit.org, Apr 17, 2013, that nine defendants faced criminal charges before a Hungarian Court for collaborating in a venture to provide “treatments” promising to help them regain lost vigor, mental acuity, even youthful appearance. The grisly enterprise came to an abrupt end with a raid by a Hungarian government agency in July 2007.

According to the charges on file, the defendants’ wealthy customers paid five million Hungarian forints, about $25,000 US, for a single shot of an as-yet-undetermined concoction of tissue and stem cells taken from aborted children.

Initially an alliance between Ukrainian abortionists and “aesthetic physicians” in Barbados, the operation moved to Hungary after it was shut down following an expose on the BBC in 2006. The famous story that led to the Institute for Regenerative Medicine (IRM) in Barbados being shuttered appalled many, but resulted in no criminal charges being brought, despite harrowing tales of newborn children being stolen from young mothers in Ukraine and dissected for organs believed to contain the most valuable stem cells for “therapeutic” use. Once exposed, several of the perpetrators simply moved to Hungary and restarted their high-price service for those who have enough money to roll the dice and subject themselves to medically-unproven treatments of unknown origin.

In July 2007, three of the defendants currently under trial were arrested at a Budapest hospital that had contracted with the clinic. István Seffer, the owner of Seffer and Renner clinic in Kaposvár, Hungary was also arrested while consulting with plastic surgery clients at a nearby facility. At the front end, the Seffer and Renner clinic provided plastic surgery and OB-GYN services, while offering the expensive and untested “treatments” out of the back end.

Performing the “treatments” was a proctologist (!) named Yuliy V. Baltaytis, a Ukrainian professor who self-published two massive “studies” on the subject that are neither peer-reviewed nor considered accepted among the European or international medical communities. Baltaytis injected the embryonic cocktail into wealthy patients solicited by art collector Imre Pákh and gastronomy expert Ádám Fásy, both of whom apparently have dual Hungarian and U.S. citizenship. The material for the treatments was prepared by Ukranian biologist Natalia Karnikova, who also worked out of IRM.

The Seffer and Renner clinic is still in operation. The owner’s brother, Tibor Seffer, apparently still performs abortions and other procedures at the clinic. The IRM obtained official approval for collecting and storing stemcells and entered into contracts with four Hungarian hospitals where abortions were performed. It is unclear how many of the aborted children’s remains used by Baltaytis came from Seffer-Renner’s own clinic, or other hospitals, and how many were obtained and used by Baltaytis.

The charges faced by the defendants have nothing to do with abortions legally or illegally performed, or with the destruction and manipulation of human embryos, since IRM apparently had all permits necessary to perform this work. What Baltayis and his colleagues stand accused of is using human cells for treatments in a for-profit venture. If found guilty, they face between three and eight years imprisonment.

Among the clients of this ethically-bankrupt enterprise was 2007 Miss Hungary and Catholic University of Budapest student Krisztina Bodri, who is described in the media as Baltaytis’ “partner”. The IRM also enjoyed high-level political support – present at the opening of the clinic in 2007 was the then-Hungarian Minister of Labor and current Socialist Party MP, Mónika Lamperth.

All of this unfolds as the European Union considers a massive investment in biomedical research, seeking to keep its research institutions at the forefront of developments in biotechnology. Entitled “Horizon 2020,” the proposal as it is currently written does not exclude obtaining research material from aborted human beings, and would create an EU fund of 90 billion Euros to fund the research.

Standing opposed to stem cell research that would destroy and utilize unborn human beings is a European Citizens’ initiative entitled “One of Us.” This movement has proposed a change to Article 16 of Horizon 2020, which deals with “ethics and principles,” that would completely preclude the use of embryonic stem cells for research, or fund any research that presupposes the destruction of human embryos. The One of Us campaign, launched by European MP Carlo Casini in 2012, must obtain at least one million signatures from at least seven EU member states before November 1stof this year. Any citizen of a Member State of the EU which is of voting age can support the initiative online on www.oneofus.eu.

“I’m a millionaire because I had an abortion”: Abortion and Moloch

“Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molek, for you must not profane the name of your God. I am the LORD.” -Leviticus 18:21

In the Old Testament, Gehenna was a valley by Jerusalem, where apostate Israelites and followers of various pagan gods sacrificed their children by fire (2 Chr. 28:3, 33:6; Jer. 7:31, 19:2–6).

One of those gods was Moloch (aka Molech, Molekh, Molok, Molek, Molock, Moloc, Melech, Milcom or Molcom), an ancient Ammonite god who demanded a particular kind of propitiatory child sacrifice by parents.

MolochAn 18th-century German illustration of Moloch as an enormous hollow statue of a bull with fire burning within.

The Ammonites or children of Ammon were an ancient nation described in the Old Testament to be located east of the Jordan River, Gilead, and the Dead Sea, in present-day Jordan. For that matter, the chief city of that ancient country was situated in the same place as today’s Ammon, the capital of Jordan.

Moloch worship was practiced not just by the Ammonites, but also by the Canaanites, Phoenician and related cultures in North Africa and the Levant. (Levant refers to today’s Middle East — Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Cyprus, southern Turkey, northwestern Iraq and the Sinai Peninsula.) The worship included parents sacrificing their children by burning them alive to Moloch.

According to medieval French rabbi Rashi (acronym for RAbbi SHlomo Itzhaki), “Moloch … was made of brass; and they heated him from his lower parts; and his hands being stretched out, and made hot, they put the child between his hands, and it was burnt; when it vehemently cried out; but the priests beat a drum, that the father might not hear the voice of his son, and his heart might not be moved.”

Excavations of a 1400-1250 BC temple at Amman by Australian archeologist John Basil Hennessy in 1966 found evidence of human and animal sacrifice by fire. Hennesy reported his findings in the Palestine Exploration Quarterly (1966). On p. 162, Hennessy writes:”Two outstanding features associated with the use of the temple were the enormous quantities of animal, bird and human bones and the abundant evidence of fire…. There can be little doubt that the temple was associated with a fire cult.” In a private communication with G.J. Wenham, Hennessy wrote that “At least 75% of them (the bones found) belong to children between the ages of 3 and 14, or thereabouts.”

Flash forward to February 5, 2012 — to the Satanic halftime entertainment ceremony at the 2012 Super Bowl, in which Madonna decked herself out as a high priestess from Hell:

Madonna

Does that head-dress look familiar to you?

Why, it’s the head of Baphomet! — the official symbol of the Church of Satan, used by Satanists as a representation of the Devil.

Wait!

Baphomet, too, looks familiar!

Why, it’s none other than that ol’ Ammonite god demon, Moloch!

Moloch, Baphomet, Madonnal to r: Moloch, Baphomet, Madonna

What’s a child-sacrifice god demon doing in contemporary America? Who are the children being “burnt” alive? Who are the heartless parents offering their children as propitiatory (appeasing; to gain favor) sacrifice to Moloch, in whatever “new” guise and by whatever “new” name?

The answer was blurted out by this middle-aged woman (below) on January 26, 2013, in San Francisco.

millionaire murderess

As recounted by Jill Stanek, it was the Walk for Life in San Francisco. Russell Hunter was one of the pro-life volunteers standing behind the police-protected guardrail surrounding a jumbo-tron from World Life Organization and Created Equal , showing a looped 2-minute video of the graphic reality of abortion.

Russell was approached by the woman in the black cap, a remorseless abortee. Justifying the abortion murder of her unborn child, the woman declared:

“I’m a millionaire because I had an abortion when I was 18!”

Here’s the video:

When Russell rightly called the mother out as having committed “human sacrifice” to the god of wealth, she further rationalized killing her unborn child, saying she was 18 at the time and in an abusive relationship. Not only did she become a millionaire “because” she had an abortion, she added, “I got a college degree from Berkeley and a master’s degree!” Because, of course, women simply cannot get a college education or achieve financial success if they have children. [Snark]

There you have it.

Her abortion — the propitiatory sacrifice of her child to Moloch — gained her the divine demonic favors of two college degrees from the prestigious University of California, Berkeley, and a million dollars.

Kind of gives a new perspective to this well-known gruesome photo of a dime and the tiny severed arms of an aborted tiny human being. The dime is meant to show the size of the unborn, but in the context of Moloch, the image now has an added import.

10w-05

In the 40 years since Roe v. Wade, more than 54.5 million American babies were murdered through abortion. That’s more than the population of the following countries (a select list):

  • South Africa, pop. 51.77 million
  • South Korea, pop. 50 million
  • Columbia, pop. 46.89 million
  • Spain, pop. 46.815 million
  • Argentina, pop. 40.117 million
  • Canada, pop. 35 million
  • Iraq, pop. 33.33 million
  • Venezuela, pop. 28.9 million
  • Afghanistan, pop. 25.5 million
  • Australia, pop. 22.881 million
  • Netherlands, pop. 16.775 million
  • Belgium, pop. 11.139 million
  • Greece, pop. 10.815 million

Abortion is the modern-day child sacrifice to Moloch.

I now better know why Dr. Patricia Lohr, a leading abortionist in the United Kingdom, says killing unborn is “extremely gratifying,” and why Katherine Hancock Ragsdale, a lesbian Episcopal priest, calls abortion “a blessing.

But the “blessing” is not of God, but from a demon.

“For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” – Matthew 16:26
